I was on the Wayfair website a few weeks ago and saw that I had bonus points toward my next purchase.
I went searching (doesn’t everyone want to use those free bonus points?) and came across a barn painting that I fell in love with.
It had the colors I wanted, the theme I wanted, and on top of that it had daisies, my favorite flower.
I thought I wanted to get away from the farmhouse look briefly, but I have so much decor in the farmhouse theme that that would be hard to do without starting over.
And I like the casual simplicity of the look, which I imagine is what attracts a lot of folks to it.
I love barns and even have a whole Pinterest board on barns.
I had the red poppies canvas painting over the bed before, but I decided that was just too bold for a space where the idea is to relax.
Before that I had the dark cow painting. But it seemed too dark for this space between the patchwork wall quilts.
From my spot on the couch where I work on my laptop, I can fully see the painting above the bed.
I wanted it to be more muted. And so now it is.
This is how I dress my bed for everyday use. During the summer months I often just sleep on top of a soft throw with a light blanket for cover.
I prefer three pillows on my bed. Two bed pillows and one throw pillow.
I am thinking about making a few changes in the dining space. I think I’m going to change up the wall above the table.
Last week I took everything off that wall and filled the nail holes. Now it’s ready for a different look.
Lately I’ve been collecting a few canvas paintings picked up here and there that I might use in that spot.
I’m also considering painting the yellow kitchen table and little pantry the same blue paint I painted the hutch. I haven’t made up my mind yet though.
Now that I don’t have the blue coffee table, the blue hutch kind of looks lonely.
